Valve posted another monthly best seller blog entry, bringing spotlight on the games with the best revenue for August 2019.

Steam's bestseller list for August 2019 features 20 titles, some expected and some less so. One important disclaimer is that the list includes both Early Access and full releases, solely based on how well they sold in the first two weeks after release. As per usual, Valve didn't divulge any exact sales numbers and the list is not ordered by top sellers, it is simply a list of 20 games that sold the best.

Without further ado, the best selling list includes:

  • Hide or Die
  • Age of Wonders: Planetfall
  • Cliff Empire
  • Metal Wolf Chaos XD
  • Dicey Dungeons
  • Ion Fury
  • Shortest Trip
  • Age of Empires: Definitive Edition
  • We Need to go Deeper
  • Rad
  • Remnant: From the Ashes
  • Undermine
  • Oninaki
  • Telling Lies
  • Hunt: Showdown
  • Pagan Online
  • Monster Sanctuary
  • The Dark Pictures Anthology: Man of Medan
  • Blair Witch
  • Re:Legend

Age of Wonders: Planetfall, Metal Wolf Chaos XD, Ion Fury, Age of Empires: Definitive Edition, Remnant: From the Ashes and Hunt: Showdown were more or less expected to make the list but it's only six out of 20 titles so it was additional 14 titles that got a bit more of a spotlight as it appears that Valve are trying to give newcomers more visibility through means other than the experimental features that may or may not come to Steam later on.

3DRealms A hand holding a minigun shooting at creatures in a corridor Ion Fury's well-executed dive into '90s nostalgia probably made the game the best sold one on the list

There are also five free games that got their own most popular list, based on concurrent player peak:

  • Steel Circus
  • Steambirds Alliance
  • Hobs
  • Undefeated
  • Rise of Legions

Steam Circus seems particularly interesting from this list, as it's an attempt to have a Rocket League-like experience merged with hero mechanics. User reviews are not stellar currently but it remains to be seen if Iron Mountain Interactive will manage to update the game enough and breathe second life into it.
